Great monitor

LG W2753VC-PF 27"  2ms Full HD Tilt & Swivel Adjustable  WideScreen LCD Monitor300 cd/m2 50000:1
LG W2753VC-PF 27" 2ms Full HD Tilt & Swivel Adjustable WideScreen LCD Monitor300 cd/m2 50000:1

Pros: It's a great monitor. Excellent color quality and depth. Given the size the response time is amazing too even if it spouts 2ms. Great for TV, games, movies. Has different Modes as well as custom mode settings.

Cons: Only trouble I had was finding the correct driver off of the LG website. The one on the disc was outdated and made everything a pinkish-red. Almost took it back but all is well with now. Not worth an egg.

Overall Review: Wish the it could switch between HDMI and DVI without having to disconnect either cords from the monitor.

Most Critical Review

Great case but....

Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

Pros: The case is HUGE but that is to be expected with a full size tower. Plenty of fans with filters. and USB 3.0 on the front.

Cons: The USB 3.0 connector, the double connector, is extremely flimsy. Be very careful or you will end up with only 1 front USB 3.0 instead of 3. Still waiting to hear back to see if I can get that piece replaced.

Overall Review: I would recommend this case as it has large amounts of space. Although, be sure to check your PSU cable lengths.

Fantastic CPU

AMD FX-8320 - FX-8000 Series Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8320FRHKBOX
AMD FX-8320 - FX-8000 Series Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8320FRHKBOX

Pros: The CPU is fantastic. Does everything I want and more.

Cons: While power draw can get a big excessive, AMD has a program to limit the speed which helps. The reason why I mention that is the stock cooler is just simply: Awful. Thought the fan was going to take off it was spinning at it's max which makes it very loud, even fro someone who is partially deaf.

Overall Review: Would recommend to anyone looking to anything CPU heavy computing but -- strongly recommend -- getting an aftermarket cooler.

Great SSD

HyperX 3K 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive) SH103S3/120G
HyperX 3K 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive) SH103S3/120G

Pros: It's not the fastest, but it is great. I have no issues with it what so ever. Install was quick and painless. Look no time to install Windows 8. After that, it look no time to download more commonly played games.

Cons: Probably no fault to it's own, but it does seem hold up or hiccup upon start up from time to time. However, reset and it boom its back like nothing happened. That is the only reason for 1 egg off.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this anyone looking for a cheap and reliable SSD. Looking forward to getting a few more of these.

Its RAM

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Memory Model F2-4200PHU2-2GBLA
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Memory Model F2-4200PHU2-2GBLA

Pros: It does as it intended. Looks nice and worked right out of the box.

Cons: Not really a con to the RAM but I wasn't able to play around with timings to see since I installed this on an old Dell tower.

Overall Review: Looks nice and added more functionality to an aging single-core Dell tower. Also installed a 1gig Video card to match the last upgrade it will receive.

Great for Old School CPU

JATON GeForce 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI Low Profile Ready Video Card VIDEO-498PCI-DLP

Pros: As mentioned before, duel screen support solid copper heat sink and 1gig.

Cons: It is PCI and $93...

Overall Review: It works well with my old Dell that's a single core. Plays the games I care to play such as WoW or YouTube streaming. Does as its intended and works well.
